    Yeah pretty much all of them. Even the old stuff, unless you can't keep up to speed, is relatively simple.

    Great stuff to learn as a beginning bassist and guitarist. Drums probably too, except nothing Lars has ever done is noteworthy so scratch that. ;)
     
  7. Most of 'Tallicas songs are easy... try For Whom The Bell Tolls.

    Yeah, I've already mastered For Whom The Bell Tolls though. It's getting pretty boring to play now.

    Fade To Black is sooo easy to play yet it sounds great, one of my favs on bass.

    I really havent seen any really hard songs, most are pretty easy, but if you want really easy, try Enter Sandman-

    My bass playing's foundation is Metallica.

    Some first songs I learned were Fade To Black, Nothing Else Matters, lot of the other Black Album basslines.

    After awhile I picked up more speed metal things like Master Of Puppets and Hit The Lights.

    I also set aside a long term project to learn all of Anesthesia bass solo. After about 4 months I got the whole thing, and it's a blast to play. I recommend learning that one if you can, although it's not really easy, I'm just saying.

    It takes a long time for a beginner to learn. It's challanging, but you can do it if you take it slow and practice over and over. In the end, it's a great piece to show off to friends and have in your repertoire.

    Orion is an awesome song to learn. Cliff's solo is so fun to play and didn't take all that long to pretty much get down. I think some of the rythem sections are harder to play than the solo.
     
  15. Pulling teeth is not that hard but he uses like a distortion/wah-wah that can make things kinda tricky at bits. It is definatly worth a go though ;)

    I've been playing Pulling Teeth for so many stinkin' years now I don't remember how hard it was to learn the first go round.

    Either way it's great to learn, everybody with a distortion pedal probably should.

    "Until it Sleeps" is pretty easy. Just remember to tune every string down a half step.
